Missing boy’s remains found along North Saskatchewan riverbank near Melfort

The Canadian Press
MELFORT, Sask. – Police say they have found the remains of a little boy who disappeared in Prince Albert, Sask., in the spring.

Sweetgrass Kennedy was last seen on May 10 and Prince Albert police had said evidence suggested the four-year-old fell into the North Saskatchewan River.

Hundreds of volunteers looked for the boy in the community at the time, covering 160 kilometres of riverbank.

His body was found Saturday after Melfort RCMP received a report of human remains along the North Saskatchewan riverbank near James Smith Cree Nation.

Evidence at the scene was sent to Saskatoon for examination by a forensic pathologist and forensic anthropologist.

Police say the coroner confirmed the boy’s identity.

    This COULD be totally legit, but basing from previous experiences, I really wonder if the report is downplayed. Either way, the loss of a totally innocent child who had no chance to do any wrong has now left this world. I hope he’s much happier where he is, (’cause I’m sure his family is going through much worse). <3
